Funny Girl

Emma just keeps growing, growing, growing! And neither one of us can believe how big she's gotten so quickly. Some of the fun(ny) things she can do now include:
  • talking on the phone (the phone being her elbow or a flashlight or a remote control)
  • telling mommy and daddy "no"
  • climbing onto and off of the couch
  • climbing up and down the stairs
  • standing unassisted (still refusing to walk)
  • scooting on her bum to get around when she can't crawl because her hands are full
  • brushing her own hair (yes, all 10 of them)
  • putting the washcloths back into their basket
  • playing peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake like a champ (it's about time!)
  • putting things in my hands that she wants me to play with
  • crawling into the dishwasher
  • scribbling on a chalkboard or paper
  • and she can eat about a cup full of strawberry frozen yogurt without batting an eye...
Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks (oh! And I almost forgot to mention my favorite thing she does lately-- she totally poses for the camera. I'll tell you when it's her "fake" face... although, I think you'll be able to figure it out):

laughing because she keeps finding cereal stuck to her face

She's actually posing for me here, but it's not one of her funny faces. Don't worry, those are coming...

This is Emma talking into her Elbow Telephone

This one too...
I know it looks weird, but we started thinking about why she would talk into her elbow, and realized: cell phones are so small now, she probably just sees us put our hands to our ears and talk-- which would look like we were just talking into our elbows!

"What on earth did mom put on my head??"

That's it for now! Apartment pics to come soon :)
